In order to help companies comply with the standards of cGMP documentation, the American Herbal Products Association (AHPA; Silver Spring, MD) has made available a new cGMP compliance tool, Good Documentation Practices: A Guide for the Dietary Supplement Industry.

The 68-page manual includes explanations of good documentation principles, step-by-step instructions on company documentation processes, and templates for companies to conduct their own documentation with. While the manual has been made in the context of manufacturing, packaging, and holding of dietary supplements, AHPA says it is also relevant for food and food ingredient services.

AHPA states that the new tool will help minimize errors, prevent record falsifications, and facilitate normal procedures involved in the cGMP documentation process.
